INSTAGRAM – According to The Old Farmer's Almanac, it's going to be a mighty cold winter. We're planning ahead with this week's
#FathomInstatrip, by putting together a slideshow of images that will instantly transport us to desert sands and jungle temperatures the moment we need warmth most.
See the slideshow. COMING UP NEXT WEEK: LIVING LARGE
InstaTrip is a Sunday roundup of the best Instagram photos of the destination or travel theme we're featuring that week. Next up: Living large. Tag your Instagram photos that best illustrate "living large" moments with #FathomInstatrip before Friday. We'll publish the best ones we find on Fathom.
